PlayStation 5: Is the Next-Generation Console Launching in October? What Sony Has to Say

Sony is well known for making powerful machines where the dreams of gamers can become reality. It all started over a quarter of a century ago, when the first PlayStation console arrived on the market in 1994. But even though it was a treasure for gamers at that time, the 32-bit console was light-years away from its upcoming 2020 descendant.

PlayStation 5 is the console that a whole gaming community from all across the world is waiting for. The next-generation console will be equipped with a powerful SSD, the elimination of the annoying loading screens for its upcoming games, and many more. But after initially being scheduled to land on stores near Christmas 2020, one recent scenario was hinting that PlayStation 5 will be coming much earlier: in October.

Sony denies the October release for PS5

A lot of enthusiastic gamers will have to cope with the dreadful news that the upcoming PS5 console is NOT coming to the market earlier than expected. Sony itself said it clear, and therefore the Holiday 2020 remains the only reliable period for when PS5 is coming out.

But what led to the claim of an October release? It was a job listing from Sony itself that said about the future applicant that he will be working “with the design department and the quality assurance department to create the PlayStation 5 scheduled to be released in October 2020.”

But later on, Sony stated that this was only a mistake.


PlayStation 5 will be a significant upgrade for its predecessor PlayStation 4, as the upcoming console will be featuring the following specifications:

  • CPU: 8x Zen 2 Cores at 3.5GHz.
  • GPU: 10.28 TFLOPs, 36 CUs at 2.23GHz, RDNA 2 architecture.
  • RAM: 16GB GDDR6.
  • Storage: Custom 825GB SSD.
  • Expandable storage: NVMe SSD slot.
  • Optical drive: 4K Blu-ray drive.

If you want to get your hands on a PS5 console, you’ll have to dig pretty deep into your pocket and bring out an amount of around $499.
